We moved Kelsey to a spot north of Grand Rapids today that, to Kelsey, probably feels a lot like heaven. Kelsey, having forgotten that she is a horse and occasionally needs to work and behave, gave us a little trouble getting into the trailer. I don't really blame her, I think she was tring to remind me that she is a horse and therefore entitled to grass every once in a while...as she tried to pick up pieces of it every chance she got. (poor patch and kels had been taken off the grass pasture for the last couple of days...they've been eating it faster than it's growing.) So after 20min of hard work outside, Kels decided that resting inside of the trailer was better than working outside. Smart mare. Gotta say, making the 2horse trailer into a 1horse seems to have made all the difference for her. She trailered great there, no falling/kicking/scrambling that we dealt with when we first got her. (i told trav i'm sure that it's because kels feels so much more secure having two working trailer lights. he agreed.)
So yes, this very nice gentlemen has allowed the very nice girl who is leasing Kelsey to keep her there for 2-3months. She will be with one other mare, but the other mare hasn't arrived yet. There are other horses to keep Kels company within eye distance. Honestly though, I don't know that she really cares. You'd think she hadn't had a square meal in days the way she went to town on the grass.
So we worked with Kels a little to show off how she moves. Just a little lunging to get the day going. Kelsey was relieved to get back to the grass.
Except for the fly mask. I'm pretty sure she flicked me off when I put it back on her.
